Virginia Creeper

Parthenocissus quinquefolia


Climbs over walls, up trees, etc. Hardy plant, fast grower, most people consider it an invasive species. Interesting detail: Virginia Creeper secures new sections by extending little "feet" tipped with sticky pads and cementing itself to the wall. Hope you can see them ...


While these photos are not all of the same plant, they were all taken one afternoon on a short block of abandoned businesses.
